A bit about me...
My journey into art started as a therapeutic activity whilst adapting to a complete change of life after I suffered a life-threatening subarachnoid brain haemorrhage.
Art is known to be beneficial for the brain and it has been instrumental in helping me through the challenges of the recovery process and also as a valuable means of expression. Although it was devastating at the time, recovery is an ongoing process and I remain positive and optimistic. I like to communicate this through my work and enjoy creating uplifting paintings that can inspire and articulate that feeling. I left a hectic London life and BBC career behind for the inspirational shores of coastal Norfolk, where I am now lucky enough to enjoy walks on the beach with my dog, and a slower pace of life.
Over time, I have explored many new creative techniques, inspired by an invaluable art group, through study, and with much experimentation and practice.
I donate a percentage from the sale of each artwork to the Brain and Spine Foundation UK, and am always interested to hear from, and support, charity exhibitions who need donations of small paintings.
